Artselerate Cohort 2 2023


Saturday 29 July from 9am to 5pm Sunday 30 July from 9am to 5pm Saturday 16 September from 9am to 5pm Sunday 17 September from 9am to 5pm

Artselerate is a unique combination of business incubator, start-up accelerator, creative collaboration, and networking opportunity that creates a fast and practical approach to business and strategic planning specifically for creative practitioners and arts organisations.

Artselerate helps participants complete their strategic business and marketing plans, with practical actions ready to be implemented, and creates a continued connection with other creative professionals through a guided peer mentoring program and ongoing connection to experts.

Artselerate is a program designed for creative practitioners at any stage of their professional development. It's a melting pot of experiences, attitudes, and ideas to get your planning done.

You could be

  • an individual artist or maker from any area of the creative industry

  • a recent graduate or fledgling freelancer just getting started

  • someone representing a small creative organisation or arts not-for-profit

  • a leader from a mid-sized arts or screen organisation who doesn't have the financial resources to hire a consultant or participate in a more expensive program.

Plus you must be over 18, and live and/or work in the City of Sydney LGA.

We welcome keen beans from any area of practice, including screen, music, performing arts, design, fashion, visuals arts, writing, and multi-arts.

Ideally, you are committed to improving your professional and creative capacity and developing your business and marketing skills in an accelerated way, through a practical approach.

You also need to be engaged, enthusiastic, and willing to commit to participating in the whole program. That means both weekends and in-between meetings. It's compulsory!

We actively encourage applications from people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, and people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent. We also welcome people of all genders.

This program is funded by City of Sydney, the local government authority for central Sydney and surrounds. City of Sydney aims to help meet the needs of our communities to ensure they continually innovate, grow, learn and enjoy all that Sydney has to offer.
